Austin College believes our historic and ongoing relationship to the Presbyterian Church may be most fully seen through discussion of what that relationship enables us to offer—to all our students, to the church, and to the world.
The College seeks to serve the Presbyterian Church through two distinct scholarship and financial aid programs:
Awarded to students who have been members of a Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation for at least six months and have demonstrated high academic achievement. Strong candidates will have demonstrated consistent involvement in the life of the Church. A limited number of $1,000 to $3,000 awards are available each year. This scholarship is renewable for each undergraduate year, provided the student maintains good academic standing and remains involved in meaningful ways in the life of the Church and/or in service to others. Nominations should be submitted by January 15.
Awarded to Austin College students who are dependents of Presbyterian Church (USA) Professionals. Awards for qualified students range from $1,000 to $10,000 annually. For details about this program, including eligibility criteria, please contact College Chaplain John Williams at 903.813.2220.
